What should you do when your Hoover washing machine has stopped working? First things first check the display panel. If you can see either E09 or an LED continually flashing nine times between pauses your washing machine has detected a problem with a specific part. Error code E09 means there is something the matter with the part in the washing machine control board that drives the motor.
Safety First! Please make sure that you’ve switched off your appliance and disconnected it from the mains before beginning any repair.
